Fullux posted a topic in Questions & AnswersHi, I got this piece of sauropod femur in February of this year as well as one more large piece, both associated and from the Morrison formation. Is there any way to differentiate fragmentary bones of sauropods from the Morrison or a way to get an identification on this individual?
Fullux posted a topic in Fossil IDHi, these are two pieces of a femur of a Camarasaur. It was found in the bone cabin quarry in Wyoming. The first piece is 16 × 9 × 7 and the second piece is 13 × 5 × 7, measured in centimeters. The femur was found in September 2020. I just wanted a second opinion on this one as I've made poor judgement in the past.

Corrections and additional info always appreciated Please Note: Variations in the morphology of these teeth can vary significantly do to, species, jaw position and ontogenetic changes. This is just a high level guide.

Diplodocus vs Camarasaurus
PetrosTrilobite posted a topic in General Fossil DiscussionI can buy only one Sauropod tooth. I am 50/50 for Diplodocus or Camarasaurus. I love both. I don't know what tooth i want more. What is your favorite one?
PetrosTrilobite posted a topic in Fossil IDI know that there are three species of Camarasaurus on the Morrison Formation, but the most sellers sell teeth as Camarasaurus grandis and not Camarasaurus sp. This is incorrect or the sellers and the paleontologist know the ID of the teeth?

Wanted: Sauropod Teeth
Dracorex_hogwartsia posted a topic in Member Fossil Trades Bulletin BoardHi All, I am looking for sauropod teeth. Madagascan teeth at the top of my list but am interested in all sauropods. I would be interested in Rabbachisaurus teeth but they would need to be in exceptional condition. I have a lot of teeth I would be willing to trade, too many to list. If you have something you would like to trade please let me know and what type of tooth you would be looking for in return. Thank you, Randy
Camarasarus ruled the classroom today
fossilsonwheels posted a topic in General Fossil DiscussionToday we debuted the Jurassic sauropod bones we picked up and Camarasaurus was the dino of the day. The kids loved the fused ribs and each kid got to touch them. We also passed around the Trike frill as usual plus some smaller Camarasaurus bones. This was by far our most interactive program yet and the students really responded. We ended up covering fewer dinosaurs but it did not matter to the kids. They were so excited to get to touch real dino fossils. This was a very informative program for me. The more of these we do, the more I believe that we need to keep adding bones the kids can touch.
Building the Dinosaur Program- the Morrison Formation... YAY !!
fossilsonwheels posted a topic in Member CollectionsIt is with a good bit of giddy enthusiasm that we share our very first Jurassic dinosaur fossils. We have a start to our Morrison Formation collection and I am so excited to take these into class. This is also a proud moment because my son and I earned these fossils with our hard work. This is a gift to our program from us and a gift to the kids we want to educate. They are also big hunks of dino bone. We needed a couple of larger bones for these programs for visual flair and these fit the bill for our budget. It will be a week before they arrive but I am too excited to wait lol On
My visit to the Natural History Museum, London
Jaimin013 posted a topic in A Trip to the MuseumOn Sunday I took a trip to the Natural History Museum in London. I queued up before it opened at 10am and even before then there was a long queue. I have not visited this museum since I was a child and spent an entire day there (10am to 4.30pm - a long time). I was surprised as it is a lot bigger than I remembered and there was so much to see. This place has the most wonderful things and is an incredible place to learn. The museum showcases a Baryonyx, Sophie the Stegosaurus (the world's most complete Stegosaurus) and more! The moving Trex and Deinonychus are also really realistic in the way t
Maybe a long neck vert????? Need help please
SULLY posted a topic in Fossil IDI apologize ahead of time. I do not have location of origin or any history on this piece. A friend of mine acquired this when he bought a store that was closing. Other than the pictures, all I can tell you is it weighs about 12 pounds. I was thinking a vert from a Diplodocus or a Camarasaurus. Any input would greatly be appreciated. Thank you everyone!
Camarasaurus or Brachiosaurus tooth?
Jaimin013 posted a topic in Fossil IDCamarasaurus or Brachiosaurus tooth? I'm leaning more towards a Camarasaurus because the crown/spoon head doesn't twist much from the neck of the root. Info on where found: Morrison Formation, Big Horn Basin Ranch, Wyoming 2.25″ long
My Morrison formation collection
njcreekhunter posted a topic in Member CollectionsHere is my Jurassic collection from the Morrison formation. This is a collection I really want to expand so if anyone has any fossils from the Morrison they'd be willing to trade definitely message me. the latest addition to my Morrison formation collection is the large partial Allosaurus vert my parents got me for Christmas. The fossil in the bottom right of the first pic is a chunk of bone, probably Camarasaurus. The fossil in the top right of the first pic is a chunk of bone, probably theropod. Pics 2,3,4= Partial Allosaurus fragilis vertebra, Hanksville Utah Pics 5,6= Allo
Most Northern Occurrence of Camarasaurus
Troodon posted a topic in Fossil NewsWhen most collectors think about North American Camarasaurus specimens localities in Utah and Wyoming come to mind. The attached paper describes a specimen from central Montana that is the most northern occurrence of this sauropod, pretty cool. Woodruff DC, Foster JR (2017) The first specimen of Camarasaurus (Dinosauria: Sauropoda) from Montana: The northernmost occurrence of the genus.

Camarasaurus Metacarpals - Set of 5 left MCs?
Don RCR posted a topic in Fossil IDThese camarasaurus metacarpals were discovered within a 20' area of the digsite. A number of other camarasaurus bones were found in the same area. They all came from a smaller, sub-adult camarasaurus. I'm trying to figure out if they all come from the same foot. (left, front foot) I have only two, or three worn out toe bones, and the big claw was missing. High energy water ripped this dinosaur apart. Parts of a diplodocus were scattered around the same area.
Weekend Dinosaur Verts
sseth posted a topic in Member CollectionsI had the chance to go out on some property of a friend this weekend and found these two great associated Caudal vertebrae from a Camarasaurus. I found them sticking out of a stone embankment and it took a bit of work to extract them. They need a bit of work but I will keep updating pics as I prepare them. It was a great day.
